Projects / Goben


Goben is a GTK+ 1.2 GUI for playing Go. It allows any combination of human vs. computer, computer vs computer, or human vs human play, and supports any board size from 5x5 to the full 19x19. Computer players are controlled via GTP for compatibility with GNUGo and other GTP talking Go programs. SGF support is provided for saving, loading, and continuing games.
